I Double-Dare You
Cats are highly territorial and possessive creatures. Anything it wants, even if it isn’t theirs, automatically belongs to them. That includes your TV’s remote control. Now, how are you going to flip through channels and find something to watch? You should probably stick to using your smartphone, OP.
This cat is just staring up at the OP as if it’s daring them to try and take the remote control away. Also, it’s on the most comfortable spot on the couch! That’s why you can’t have nice things when there’s a pet cat involved. Anything you purchased with your hard-earned money automatically goes to the cat.
